Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng Team Up in “Blind Detective”
Crime thriller, Blind Detective <盲探>, captured the most attention at the 2013 Hong Kong International Film and Market (FILMART) trade show yesterday. The movie reunites “box office golden team” – producer Johnnie To (杜琪峯), director Wai Kai Fai (韋家輝), Andy Lau (劉德華) and Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文).
Andy Lau stars as a blind detective who partners with police officer, Sammi Cheng, to track a vicious killer on the loose. Andy will be pulled by his curiosity into the dangerous game of cat and mouse. The trailer shown at yesterday’s press conference was filled with bloody scenes and the phrase, “So many tragic cases go unsolved” points to a suspenseful detective thriller.
Although Andy and Sammi haved not worked together for more than 9 years, they still maintained a strong chemistry for their 7th film collaboration. Both agreed that their trust for each other gave them the ease to express themselves better. Andy further praised Sammi for having reached a higher level in her acting skills due to changes in her personal life.
“Working with Andy, I cannot loosen myself. You can see that he is very fit, and will place a lot of effort and heart in each of his scenes. As his costar, I feel that he will drive me to deliver my best,” Sammi said.
Fear of Motherhood
Sammi and Andy Hui’s (許志安) romance has been put frequently under the microscope. Although rumored to be marrying Andy Hui this year, Sammi has kept her private life under tight wraps. However, she admitted that she is nervous about motherhood and does not see herself as being a good mother. Sammi will leave such matters to God and accept her fate when the day arrives.
A Father’s Sentiment
Fatherhood has evoked a greater sense of empathy within Andy. Applauding Johnnie and Wai Kai Fai for their sharp insights in showcasing the tragedies through their films, Andy said, “In our society, it’s important to understand and communicate with our loved ones more. With the help of many family institutions, this can be done.” When he was asked what method of communication he uses with his daughter, Andy laughed and said, “I still have time!”
